Revenue loss and required VAT rates due to replacing the employer sponsored insurance deduction and self-employment health insurance deduction with a voucher to purchase private insurance. Individual voucher value depends on age and gender; the total voucher for each tax unit is the sum of each individual's voucher. Only individuals not on public insurance receive a voucher.
